“Beautiful place to stay.”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

My family and I love this caravan park. We stayed in our caravan and were put near the pool, bbq area and toilets. We booked for 3 nights and ended up staying for 7! It was family friendly, kids could ride around and feel safe. Walk straight to the beautiful beach or swam in the fantastic pool. Toilet block very clean and grounds were well looked after. My only very small gripe would be there are no sun lounges around the pool and noticed when we were there everyone took their own chairs to sit on. It gets a little uncomfortable lying around on concrete. We can not wait to come back.

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of the month & had a fantastic time. The staff were extra helpful and helped with site choice. Being the quiet season we had alot of space & neighbours were a number of sites away. The park is clean & tidy, & even after a storm overnight the grounds looked great. The amenities are very clean & well serviced. There were a number of caravanners , who like us, were staying with their dogs, and the area around the park has a few good paths and park areas to take the dog for a walk. There is also a great bike path nearby for cyclists. Its definately a great spot for a night, a weekend or a week.

Stayed in the cheapest of their cabins for 2 nights and found them to contain all we needed. Not much room for the portacot, but for kids there are bunk beds, so probably suits older families.

Clean and tidy.

Would have liked to see more actual games available - the games room just contained arcade games. Possibly DVDs available at reception, but we didn't see this advertised anywhere.

Would stay here again. Highly recommend the 30-40 minute walk along the track from the Fingal Bay park to Shoal Bay.

Room Tip: Cheaper cabins only have a small fan heater so if traveling in winter be aware of this!

we arrived at fingal bay holiday park to a warm welcome and were told we could have a look around the park before we booked and to look at the sites available for the mobilehome , we were only going to stay one night but after having a walk around we booked four nights. the site is very clean and right by the beach , the hook up points for the van are very easy to reach . the wash room always looks as tho it is never used and the laundry room is very clean as well .there is always cleaning the park i.e lawn cutting or sweeping up 10 out 10.if your looking for a clean and quiet park then this is the one , the beach is only a minute away and is fantastic. would we stay again when over from the u.k you bet . we hope to return in may 2013.

Room Tip: try and book a pitch by the beach as the waves will send you to sleep also im very lazy not that you...

Toilets cleaned regularly, Right next to the beach, shops nearby, reasonably priced, nice staff on arrival. would defo recommend this park for anyone camping.

Just returned from 3 nights in a Garden Villa at Fingal Bay. It was a brilliant location and brilliant cabin. We did not stop from the moment we got up in the morning until we went to bed. My children are exhausted but are asking to return again next year. The pool in the park is massive and beautiful and the beach and bike track across the road is so close. You will have a great holiday stay.

This was our second time here with our 3 and 5 year olds. Plus this time I booked a small Palm Cabin and took the grandparents.
The park is very clean, the cabins excellent, the position of the park in Fingal Bay is perfect. In fact I cant fault anything, EXCEPT the fact you cant book your requested Surf Villa, when paying $250 per night I expect to be able asked for a specific Villa. It is a nervous wait to see if you got the beach facing villa or one facing the drain.
If they said at time of booking sorry that villa is not available then I can decide wether to book or not

Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay both times at Fingal Bay Holiday Park.

The park is in a great location with high quality products and service.

I would like to apologise that we were unfortunately unable to guarantee your particular cabin. There are occasionally some issues such as maintenance problems where some guests may need to be moved to a different cabin, although this is very rare. Therefore to avoid disappointment we introduced a policy that doesn't guarantee your requested cabin / site although we do everything possible to fulfill our guests requests.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family back again soon.

Kind regards,

Madeleine Koosmen
